When it comes to travel adapters, your options are about as varied as the many destinations where you might go on vacation. There are adapters with USB ports, ones with more power and size, or designs with only one charging port and a small footprint. 

The EPICKA Universal Travel Adapter has a little bit of everything, from USB ports to an additional iPhone charger. Plus, it’s very small compared to other travel adapters that come with all kinds of add-ons. We took the EPICKA Universal Travel Adapter to Swedish Lapland to find out if it’s the best option for our international travels (and we travel a lot).

Design: All the ports you could ever need

The biggest selling points of the EPICKA are its versatility and size—features that saved us from overpacking for our trip to the Arctic. With the ability to create plugs that work in over 150 countries, the EPICKA's all-in-one design meant this small cube was all we needed. Unlike the power strip design of other models, this travel adapter can fit in just about any bag.

To use the EPICKA, move the three slides on the side of the adapter to match the plug you need; it'll appear from inside the cube. It's slightly inconvenient that you have to hold down a button for them to move, but we're sure that feature exists to prevent the slides from migrating on their own.

The sheer number of charging ports on this adapter is also true design feat—somehow it includes a whopping four standard USB ports, one USB Type-C port, and one AC socket, allowing you to charge up to six devices simultaneously.

Portability: Easy to store

With no additional cords or removable plug adapters, this travel adapter is compact and simple. When it’s in the included storage pouch, you can easily toss it into any bag, from a personal item to a carry-on, and it’ll take up a minimal amount of space.

While we thought that the button function is annoying, it does give us faith in the durability of the product. Even if you do throw this travel adapter into a suitcase without the protection of the travel pouch, there’s no chance the ejectable plug adapters will be popping out as long as that button isn’t being pushed.

Features: Bonus charger is a life-saver

Potentially one of the best elements of the EPICKA Universal Travel Adapter is the included iPhone charger. If you ever leave your charger at home or in another bag, you’ll be pleasantly surprised upon unzipping the travel pouch for this adapter. 

The EPICKA Universal Travel Adapter also has a special USB-C port that isn’t usually included with travel adapters at this price point. There are the usual USB ports, as well, which collectively give you more charging choices than other similar models.

Setup: Easy, but with one catch

The only downfall of this adapter is the button you have to push to eject any of the destination-specific plugs. While we understand the idea behind this feature—and that ultimately, it will probably lengthen the lifespan of the adapter—it’s an annoying necessity that can slow you down as the sliders themselves feel a bit flimsy.

Aside from knowing that you need to push the button to activate the various sliders, using this adapter couldn’t be any easier. Choose your plug type, slide it out, and plug it into an outlet. From there, connect your device via USB or USB-C and you’re good to go.

Price: Great value

The EPICKA Universal Travel Adapter is a great value for the price, considering it comes with USB ports and a special USB-C port, as well as a traditional plug. You may not have multiple plug ports to work with like you do with other adapters, but you really can’t beat the price at just over $20. 

Competition: The best around

There are other inferior adapter designs out there that don’t include the same features as EPICKA—it’s the best value for a frequent traveler. Its all-in-one nature—especially given the fact that it’s so compact—makes it stand out from the competition. For example, compared to the sizable BESTEK adapter, the EPICKA is downright mini.

Yes, buy it

If you’re looking for an inexpensive travel adapter that will charge a variety of devices, this is one of the best choices out there. The compact footprint of this adapter—paired with its sheer number of charging ports—puts it ahead of more powerful adapters, if you ask us.
